- Instant alert when door or gate to pool is opened

Here's What the Product Does:
When a monitored door is opened, the wireless door/window contact sends an immediate signal to the plug-in receiver featured in this kit and a selected chime sound is played. This kit may be expanded by adding more transmitters (sensors) as well as more receivers. The components in this kit are also compatible with the Carlon series or wireless door chime products that allow easy integration with other home alert and chime products. You can add push buttons, motion sensors, doorbell extenders and more to the components in this kit.
What's in the Kit?
The RC3260 is a wireless door/window alarm comes in two components. The sensor is indoor rated only and is powered by a 9 Volt battery (supplied). The sensor is comprised of two pieces one of which is magnetized. When these contacts are separated, the sensor is triggered and then wirelessly signals a plug-in chime receiver. The great thing about this product is that it uses the same receiver as the RC3253 so that you can easily expand the system by adding additional sensors and or additional receivers.
How the Products are Powered:
The door window sensors are battery operated – no wiring required. The range between the transmitter and receiver is roughly 150 feet. This range may be decreased by qualities such as metal doors, concrete, and stucco.
This product works best by a door or window that typically stays closed. It does not detect motion or other movement and is only triggered when the magnetic contacts are separated.
If you plan on placing your door sensor outside, we recommend ordering the RC2260. If not, go with the RC3260.
